The Sunday Steep!

  This tea has a little zip, a little zing, and a bit of sweet. I love every herb in this recipe and stumbled upon this creation when I wanted something to drink in the morning after a night of festive eating. The Yarrow leaf & flower, Lemon peel, and the Ginger powder have some nice bitters qualities, helping to stimulate my sluggish appetite or to give my digestive system a boost. I can't seem to get enough Oatstraw and Nettle leaf and I always feel like I'm doing something good for myself when I find a way to include them in my teas. Feel free to adjust the amounts if you want a bit more bitter or a bit more […]

Adventures in Herbal Home Brewing

My love of home brewing is over a dozen years old. From my first novice attempt with a beer-making kit, it was a quick trajectory to all grain brewing and some grand experiments (not all of which resulted in delicious masterpieces, mind you!) Now, I grow my own hops on three established hop plants along the edges of the garden, and this provides plenty of plump hops to dehydrate and freeze for use in my creations. While my brewing adventures started with modern-ish beer recipes, I also love experimenting with meads and herbal fermentations. For me, the joy of home brewing is creating beverages that I can’t get anywhere else! Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers is a dense book of […]

The Sunday Steep!

Some weeks are busy weeks full of long days and late nights! While I am not really a caffeine junky, I do like my cup or two of coffee brewed with cacao nibs every morning. On weeks like this past one, however, where we are visiting with lots of people, going to events far and wide, and still putting in a good day's work, I tend to reach for tea more than coffee throughout the day. I think my nerves and senses respond well to the calming ritual of tea, it helps to keep me hydrated, and it's a small way to pay attention to my body's needs when the wild world is calling! This tea recipe is made up […]
